Summary: All the major events in our national history have been experienced at first-hand by ordinary Australians. Through a range of personal accounts of difficult times, each of the stories brings the reader into intimate contact with people whose life experiences are part of our collective history.

The present collection is focussed on various Australian themes, covering the first half of this century. Like much good oral history, this collection affords a hearing to voices sometimes unheard: the Aborigines, the rural battlers, the pick-and-shovel men and the housewives. (Geoffrey Bolton).
